Thanks icefest. Sorry about the delay posting, I've just had a 44-hour power outage.

This one is in the NT, a couple of days walk from your photo.

Not Hugh Gorge, icefest. That would take me more than a couple of days to walk to (from the location of your Mt Sonder photo).

That's correct, sandy!

It's the rock arch at the north end of Bowmans Gap. Near a stunning campsite and a spring-fed water supply.

Nope. North of Katherine, south of Darwin, not that big, has a walking track for short distance and then rock hop, swim.

GBW for the win. Not a very big National Park but walking/swimming right through the gorge until it ends is surprisingly fun. Not a body around after you pass the first couple of pools.

Thanks sandym. Stopped in there a few years back on a NT trip. I've posted a pic of it in this game somewhere. Staying in NT...
